Who visits Gilgal Garden?
The UTAH WATERCOLOR SOCIETY had a Plein Air event at the garden in March of 2019. Because it was snowing on and off, and
very cold, they only had four people. You can see they each got a different painting, completed, and visitors to the garden were able to see the art, and watch them paint. They had so much fun they will be back in the spring to do it again when the flowers are blooming.
March 23, 2019 we had students from a University of Utah course in Lifelong Learning. I forgot to take a picture. They had already had some lectures in gardening, and were at Gilgal with tools in hand, on another rainy day, to do some hands on gardening.

Friends of Gilgal Garden
Recognized as the must-see destination for Salt Lake City’s quirky Mormon-esque sculptures, Gilgal Garden is much more than the rock edifices that distinguish it from other public spaces in the city. The 3-acre park also has a carefully curated garden, the upkeep for which falls on the shoulders of a group of volunteer gardening experts. In the warm months, these do-gooders can be found at Gilgal Garden every Tuesday morning, pulling weeds, pruning trees, spreading mulch or resting in the shade. A few of the gardeners also serve on the Friends of Gilgal Garden board, which guides other park decisions. (DWH)
